What is holding you back?

Why haven't you accomplished what it is you want to accomplish? Why don't you lead the life you want to lead and that you dream of? I have already mentioned the 3-4 things that need to be done in order for anyone to be what they want to be, or do what they want to do. Sometimes, when I hear someone say they want to do this or that, and I notice they aren't doing it, I really wonder why? Then I think about myself. Why am I not exactly where I want to be? Why did I start this blog 6 or so months ago- and just now start writing in it? The only conclusion I have come to is fear.

What am I scared of? What do people get scared of reaching for their goal? For me, I didn't start writing in this blog because I was scared people would think I don't have the knowledge for it. I was scared that no one would ever read it. I was scared that it might not take me where I want to go. Maybe my expectations are too high and I would get disappointed. Well, to tell you the truth- I am still scared! I'm still scared that no one will ever read it, or they will read it once and be like- ok, she is just rambling and has no clue what she is saying. But, this time around, I told myself, does it really matter? Does it really matter what people think? Does it really matter if this doesn't get me to exactly where I picture myself? NO! It's a definite start and I know that I can start learning by trial and error, and hopefully along the way inspire someone to do what they have always wanted to do, or be who they want to be, no matter what the outcome. Let go of fear and just do it. You never know what may happen, the possibilities are endless, but not unless you try!

I have let go of a lot of fear this past year and have discovered new talents and things that I enjoy. It is wonderfully liberating and exhilarating. Thanks for the words of motivation.

Good for you! When you overcome your fears- you "inadvertently" set an example for others around you- and they are more likely to overcome theirs too! Way to go:)

I adore your blogs and think that you are amazing. I admire what an incredible mother you are! I am still laughing about how you made your kids cry when you told them you cut off your finger. Thank you so much for creating these three entertaining and motivational blogs.

Love & Hugs,
